The celebrated Serge de Diaghilctf
Ballet Russe is to include Omaha in
its coast-to-coast tour, showing here
at the Auditorium Saturday. Decem
ber J6 for a single pertormance. As
M. DiaghilerT found it impossible to
accompany the troupe this year, the
ballet will be under the artistic di
rection of Waslav Nijinsky himself,
who will also dance the leading role
in many of the ballets. Nijinsky
amazes alike by his prodigious leaps
through the air, his unexampled ver
satility in poetic and emotional in
terpretation and his flawless tech
nique. Ten ballets will be presented in
the repertoire, each of them exactly
as produced abroad. Among these
will be the sensational novelties
which so startled the connoisseurs of
two continents. A favorite is "Sche
herazade," the wierd oriental melo
drama which takes place in a harem.
Then there is "Cleopatre," the exotic
pantomime, featuring the sapphire
queen of the Nile, with the magnifi
cent Flora Revalles in the role of her
majesty, "Le Spectre de la Rose,"
"Thamar," "Carnaval," "Sadko,"
"Prince Igor" and "Papillons" are
other ballets which in turn thrilled
and transfixed the audiences of Eu
rope. They will be presented here
in their artistic entirety.
A prominent feature of the enter
tainment will be the costumes and
settings by Europe's famous decora
tive artist, Leon Bakst. For sheer
barbaric splendor nothing can equal
the jeweled and gilded costumes of
the oriental ballet "Scheherazade."
For novelty and daring the veiled
garments of "Cleopatre" are an inno
vation which charm as well as thrill.
And the gigantic stage settings re
vealing colorful and gorgeous inte
riors and vast woodland vistas are
such which no scenic artist has here
tofore conceived. The music, rep
resentative of the greatest compos
ers, classics, modern and contem
porary, will be rendered by a sym
phony orchestra of skilled soloists,
tinder the direction of Pierre Mon
teux, who quitted the trenches of

lieadea Dy Wasiav Nijiuaky, acknowl
edged to De tne greatest inaic uamci
now alive. He amazes alike by his
technique, versatility and poetic in
terpretation. M. Nijinsky will act
in the dual capacity oi premier uau
seur and artistic director. Support
ing him are the dainty Lydia Lopo
kova, the brilliant Flore Revalles, the
virile Adolf Bolm, the spiritual Gav
riloff and Mesdames Pflanz, Sokolova,
Frohman, Spesewecewa and Faithful
and two score ballerinas, each a
skilled graduate of the Imperial Rus
sian Dancing schools.
In the repertoire of ten ballets
which the company will perform will
be found a trio of world-famous sen
sations, such as art lovers ,ot this
community have never seen, fore
most among them will be the gor
geous "Scheherazade," a wild, oriental
orgy set in a harem. In this exotic
tale from the Arabian nights, the dis
satisfied inmates of the Shah Zeman's
harem demand the release of the Nu
bian slaves during their master's ab
sence. His untimely return brings
the action to a rather unfortunate con
clusion for the unuxorious wives. Sec;
ond on the list of novelties is "L
Apres Midi d'un Faune," a pastoral
of the police in more than one com
munity last year, it aepicis mc inch
ing of a wild wood creature with a
company of nymphs who startle him
from, his rocky ledge.
"Cleopatre," considered by many
the most marvelous number in the
repertoire of ballets and admitted to
be a Bakst masterpiece of barbaric
splendor, is set in the court of the
sapphire queen of the Nile and it
affords Flore Revalles, the brilliant
mime who is seen in the role of
Egypt's famous queen, an opportunity
of wearing the most sensational gown
in the tntire wardrobe of the troupe.
That You Are Still
"W i. .... ,-.-,1
MickeFs Nebraska Cycle
It consists of an amount of veiling
estimated at from fifty to 200 yards,
swathed about the matchless form of
the dancer, with an eye to the cm
ciency as well as economy. In the
course of the melodrama it is required
that the queen divest herself of a por
tion of her garment. This is done
by two beautiful handmaidens, who
circle about the statuesque beauty
much as children circle about a May
pole. Other ballets in the repertoire in
clude "Mephisto Waltz," a dramatic
episode conceived by Nijinsky during
his internment in Austria two years
ago to the well-known composition of
Franz Liszt. This ballet had its world
premiere in New York. Others are "Le
IJieu Bleu and "Sadko, two pallets
familiar abroad, but given their first
presentation here this year, "Nar
cisse," "Thamar," "Carnaval," "Prince
Igor," "Les Sylphides" and "Le Spec
tre dc la Rose."
